The club director training course has been shortened to three days and the material revisited to bring it into line what most clubs want from their directors.
EBED also continue to provide seminars as updates on directing matters, both generally and on the new laws, as well as on the use of EBUScore and to support the new EBU forum for club directors to share information and discuss problems. https://www.ebu.co.uk/forum/ .
New flowcharts have just been published reflecting the impact of the new laws – these are very popular with many directors.
EBED has also taken over responsibility for the County director training program – with both the Advanced TD course (ie County TD prep day) in the Spring and the September training weekend in Coventry.
If you would like to encourage more players to become directors in your area, then please contact Richard Banbury(firstname.lastname@example.org) to help set up a suitable course. Course information and calendar can be found here http://www.ebedcio.org.uk/td-training.
One innovation to help meet the needs of directors in the northern half of the country is that in 2018 the Advanced TD course (also known as the County TD Prep Day) will be held twice – in Leeds (March 24th) and in Aylesbury (May 12th). Please encourage the leading club directors in your region to come to one of these days in anticipation of attending the County TD training weekend in the future. Please contact Richard for more details.
